Wood Windfall

logs First nationEl Director(Juan de Fuca’s infamous Mike Hicks) recommended we talk with our Forester (Loren Perraton) for a load of old growth fir. Loren comes up with a beautiful load of wood & the third actor in this story, The Trucker(a great guy called Kelvin Madison) offers to bring the load to Pender.

The cost of the ferry & the time involved threw a kink into the mix.

Our First Nations neighbors offered to help by trading us an equal amount of wood on a pile that they had over here on Pender. The Trucker, Kelvin, (as you will see in my pictures, well at least his gloves, remember this was my first time) jumped on the cause in the middle of a very busy schedule & delivered the logs to Tsawout, Saanichton.

The story has not ended yet as our Pender Community Hall will benefit from this load of logs but that is an episode for anther day.

It just goes to show, when we all work together we can achieve anything.
